What People Are Saying

A remarkable site... In all, this rich and versatile site repays the time spent to explore it in depth.

The Journal of American History

Between its people and its content, it feels like Alexander Street is just walking off the shelves.

Diane Costello Council of Australian University Librarians

Stunning in quantity and in quality...a tour de force

Library Journal

If Alexander Street’s positive feedback from its customers and its grand ambitions to expand its video offerings are any indication, the academic publishing industry may well be in the midst of a paradigm shift that even librarians can get excited about.


Academic Video Online provides a vast database of film and video clips from documentary, newsreel, entertainment, and television sources. The range of material is broad and deep... The thematic range and temporal span make the collection relevant to many disciplines, courses, and student levels.

Joseph E. Taylor, III, Dept. of History, Simon Fraser University American Reference Books Annual (ARBA)

[Alexander Street does] excellent work on behalf of libraries, and more importantly, on behalf of scholars around the world.

Larry Alford, Dean of Libraries University of Toronto

Alexander Street has the cleanest, most responsive search apparatus in the business.


Very easy-to-use and comprehensive... Highly recommended.
